Think Tank Launches Digital Holster 150 for Telephoto Zooms

The Digital Holster range from Think Tank Photo has been around for some time, but now they have expanded it with the addition of the Digital Holster 150. This new larger size comes in response to customer demand for a holster that can fit the growing number of 150-600mm sized lenses on the market. I would also include the Nikon 200-500 in this list, as well as 100-400mm lenses from Canon and Sony, and the Sony 200-600mm. In addition to these zoom lenses, it’ll also fit a 300mm f/2.8, the Canon 400mm f/4 DO IS II and the Nikon 500mm …

Nikon F-mount is also available for pre-order, but it’s not yet clear when the Sony E-mont version will come to market. Later this year we should also see an L-mount version of this lens for Sigma’s upcoming full-frame mirrorless camera, as well …

Adobe Finally Fixes Lightroom Healing Brush?!? It’s FAST now.

For years the healing brush tool in Lightroom (Classic) has been pathetically slow and essentially useless unless you only used it to fix one or two tiny spots on an image. If you added any more than that, Lightroom would slow to a crawl. For the most part it forced me to export the image to Photoshop to use their healing and cloning tools when I needed to fix dust spots or remove small imperfections because it was so much faster.
